On  thursday 4 Februari we drove very early direction Alphen aan de Rijn to give demonstrations service-dog and para-agility.

Demonstration servicedog with Joep and para-agility with both, Quita and Joep.

 

We were quest on basicschool  " The Weerklank" a special school for children with bad  hearing and speech-problems (www.deweerklank.nl).

The demonstration servicedog was being held for group 4 of the school. At this moment they were working on a project about dogs and in the class-room they have make a real dog-museum.

At the end of the demonstration there was opportunity for the children to ask questions and they had a lot of nice and  clear one. They have prepared very good!

Even they want to measure the tail of Joep and  want to feel the thickness !

 

Just before the lunch  we go out and on a little  grass-field we have build a little course.

We were lucky about the weather, it was not raining! The ground was muddy after a vew weeks of snow, but I could drive and show some para-agility.

The flat-tunnel at the end of the course is always succesfull, the children like it very much when the dogs came out this tunnel very fast!

All groups came out to see this demonstration and for closing they could  stroke the dogs and give them some hugs if they like!

Everytime it's very good to see if some children who are very affraid of a dog, stroke them at the end!

I have recieved a very nice little book with pictures maked by the children of group 4  and a photo of the group! Thanks again!!
